Doesn't make Cents
Ever notice how Americans will literally drive across town to get gasoline for a couple cents cheaper per gallon? So on an 18 gallon tank they saved a total of 36 cents. Yippee! 'Course they burned a quarter of a gallon to get to the station.
Now consider this. Americans buy millions of 20 oz. bottles of water every year. The average individual price is about a dollar a bottle. It takes 6.4 of these bottles to equal a gallon. That means we pay a little over $6 a gallon for bottled water without giving it a second thought. Silly humans.

Don't be a baby!
So here's a quandry for you. Why do we use the word "baby" as a term of endearment? That's like calling your sweatheart an incontinent moron with a muscular disorder. Think about it.
Babies scream. They poop themselves. They're constantly regurgitating their food. It's not a pretty picture.
Some phrases of affection work, some don't. Let's review. . .
"Snuggle bunny"... strange, but okay.
"Sweetie pie"... may be short for sweet potato pie, so it's a toss up.
"Precious"... not unless you're looking to be hurled into Mt. Doom.
